The Boehner Lawsuit Against
Obama Is Beginning to Take Shape

National Journal, by Billy House

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/9/2014 4:19:42 AM

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

FTA " "If Congress were to do its job and pass the legislation I´ve [obama] directed them to pass, I wouldn´t be forced to take matters into my own hands.""

Every 10 year old kid knows that Congress doesn´t report to the President. The guy is definitely tyrannical.

Thanks , Boner. Watch how fast the MSM morphs ´lawsuit´ into ´impeachment´ as we head into the fall elections. This couldn´t ´languish´ for a while like nearly all legal cases?

Dittos, #3. Put this in the same basket as all those bills to repeal Obamacare. Just bones to mollify the base.

It will go nowhere.

Impeach - now.
Reid kills it.
Campaign on it.
Win a mandate in NOvember.
Re-impeach in January.
Put pressure on Senate Dems in February.

IMO, that´s our only real chance. The Emperor is consolidating his power.

2016 election? What 2016 election? Third term? It could happen if we continue to wring our hands and do nothing effective.

Congress has been working on this lawsuit trying to get it right, doing their best before taking it to Court. At least they are doing something, which is what we´re all screaming they should do.

"If congressional standing is denied in such cases, there will be no other way to check such presidential usurpation short of impeachment," the two write.

So if the lawsuit fails on the grounds that there´s no "standing" in the Courts, they can proceed with impeachment, which they will do.

They are being careful and judicious. They don´t want charges of recklessness being hurled at them. They really are trying so I think they deserve some credit. Going directly to impeachment with no interim accusations isn´t wise.

During the lawsuit´s Court presentation, American media will cover all the excesses of this POTUS and the outright breaking of our laws. Average Americans, not just the Court, will be able to see his lawlessness.

As for Obama´s comment:

"If Congress were to do its job and pass the legislation I´ve directed them to pass, I wouldn´t be forced to take matters into my own hands."

Our "Constitutional lawyer in the Oval Office" reveals that he doesn´t even know how our government works. The POTUS doesn´t "direct" Congress to do anything. The POTUS proposes action to the Congress. It´s Congress´ job to "pass legislation", not POTUS´ job.

OPEN LETTER TO "THE CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYER IN THE OVAL OFFICE": That´s not how America works. Ever hear the term, "The President proposes, Congress disposes"? You are not a dictator, dude.

In addition, this process will provide a logical step toward stating all of his impeachable actions. Hopefully this provide proof to the electorate leading up to the midterms that the Dem´s are complicit in this debacle. If these proceeding provide the impetus to win back a majority in the Senate as well as maintain a majority in the House then impeachment could become a reality. Also by that time I believe that there will enough remaining Dem´s that are afraid of voter backlash that will also go along.

This could get interesting. By the time the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group gets done with its legal analysis and drafting, I wonder if the document it produces will have "Articles of Impeachment" written across the top of it. That is, after all, the proper way for the House of Representatives to present its charges against a President. Sneaky.

# 13...thanks.

Some of you folks go are going back to thrashing the House...our team.

Of course, they mistakes but impeaching Obama isn´t one of them. If Obama prayed, his first prayer would be that the House impeach him. If you don´t understand why at this late date...you need to make the effort...read the Constitution. This lawsuit is the way to go. It well get the issues in front of the voters before the election. Our biggest risk in both of these scenarios is the msm but far less with the lawsuit plus it won´t be bogged down for months with the msm slaying us daily...in a no win situation.

#17 you are correct. As much as I want to see this man in Leavenworth, law suit right now is the way to go. Dems have the senate, so impeachment won´t go anywhere but 24/7 on the MSM. Besides, I think he is trying very hard to get impeached before the November elections. He is also pushing the border situation to instigate a confrontation with "we the people" so he can declare martial law and cancel the elections. The law suit should also include treason for allowing a foreign invasion into the country.

Oh boy, the Republicans will be beat over the head by the democrats with taking on this issue while children on the border are being neglected and left to languish by those mean ol´ Republicans. It will be said that Republicans have a vendetta against the president and they are more concerned with harming him than they are helping those poor innocent children. Obama´s timing of the border crisis could not have been more opportune for him. You´d almost believe he planned it that way. Republicans need to go on the offense before the democrats put them on the defense. Get effective talking points prepared for both issues or suffer the consequences.

Dittos to #1 & #2 - you beat me to those same responses, and #13 is the voice of reason-excellent post.

The article caused me to have an OMG moment - I feel like I´m watching Shakepeare´s play Julius Caesar. Could it be that Barry thinks he can get away with becoming an American Julius Caesar?

Obviously, our Congress members would never go to the lengths Caesar´s opponents went, but there are so many parallels to Caesar and to Barry´s idea of "ruling" that it is almost shocking - especially to those of us who believe in a Constitutional Republic.

The following shippets are from an analysis about the times of ole Julius and is by Arash Farzaneh. It is found at https://suite.io/arash-farzaneh/5ek62c7

1. "Julius Caesar´s rise to power was connected with disregard and even disrespect for rules, tradition and authority."

2. "Caesar continued to openly challenge his main opponent"(Congress?)... "When he crossed the Rubicon he was in direct defiance of Roman law, because as the governor of Gaul, he was not allowed to enter Rome, something the constitution forbid."(since when has that stopped Barry?)

3. "Caesar decided to give himself more power by diluting the powers and reaches of the senate."

4. "This period is known as the end of the Republic as Caesar took on the autocratic position of “perpetual dictator.” The position of “dictator” in those times was usually temporary and mainly during exceptional times of crisis, but Caesar used it to usurp absolute control." (Is this what is in store for the USA?)

5. "One of the flaws of Caesar was also his strongest trait, his ambition. He had however become overconfident and it made him complacent. He thought himself invincible both in battle and in Rome..."

Congress needs to get busy before Barry Caesar nullifies the Constitution.

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life´s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19–28

While I have little doubt this reflects Obama´s actual attitude towards the Constitution, NJ´s quote seems to originate from a satirical site: http://azconservative.org/2014/06/28/president-tries-to-fend-off-evidence-of-incompetence/

The NJ inadvertently makes the point that it´s hard to parody the current Administration and Democratic Party, but guys/gals, Obama gives us so much real stuff to work with, we don´t have to waste our credibility on the fake stuff.

Spot on are the references to Caesar and the final days of Rome. Even the liberal lapdogs who support this loud-mouthed buffoon are playing out the decadence and corruption that enabled the fall of Rome. However, if it comes to pass, there will be a Brutus. Barry has a collection of boot-lickers but their actions are not out of loyalty because they know that their spot under the bus is only moments away.

So let´s play this out: Boehner sues obozo and, wonder of wonders, the SCOTUS rules 9-0 that obozo has overstepped his powers......crickets....crickets....Why would anyone think this tyrant would change his behavior?? Who will make him? Not Holder. He has ignored the laws of this country every since he was coronated! The republicans are afraid to use their Constitutional power of the purse. They will never impeach this guy even if he defied the SCOTUS because they are more afraid of being called racist by the media than they are of losing our liberty on their watch. Folks, we are screwed: the dems are too corrupt to rule and the rebups, with the exception of a few like Cruz and Lee, are too stupid.

Impeachment is bandied about on talk radio ( Savage and Erickson ) and from Sarah Palin as if it means removal from office.
Impeachment for Obama and escaping a conviction
in the Senate would be like OJ being charged
and then found not guilty.
No serious person could imagine anywhere from 15 to 21 Senate Democrats voting to remove the first
black president from office.
Obama would emerge victorious and the Democrats
would be energized.
Just in time for 2016.
The celebrations would be nauseating because Obama had beaten the Republicans.
The media would be exultant and
Republicans would look like fools.
What exactly are the criminal charges and evidence the impeachment crowd thinks they could present ?
Do they think Eric Holder , Lois Lerner , Valerie Jarrett et. al are going to rat out the POTUS ???
The lawsuit is the only rational and logical way to remind the American people of
Obama´s reckless and lawless behavior .
Unfortunately , talk radio and the Tea Party
waste their time and energy blaming
elected Republicans for Obama´s actions.

This lawsuit is just slight of hand to distract us from demanding that Boehner do his job and stop the flow of money that enables the tyrant to inflict his tyranny!!!

Stop funding to the NSA division that is spying on Americans. Stop funding the IRS, EPA and other agencies that are persecuting conservatives who are perceived to be a risk to this administration. Stop funding to buy federal land on the southern border that prevents Texas from securing the border.

Should a lawsuit actually make it to the court, what consequences does Boehner expect from it?? It seems apparent that it is simply another of his delay tactics to avoid taking any action to stop the renegade in power. He should just be honest and simply say nothing as he does nothing. We all understand that his job is over his head or perhaps he is happy with being an appendage of the Democrat party. That is the way things are. So another solution to the devastation of America has to be found by the people. Boehner is irrelevant. Frankly, it would be nice if he would just go away.

#29 is speaking reality
Perhaps #31 wasn´t watching close when the Clinton impeachment was turned into a social circus leaving no recourse to bring the real charges and treason into the issue.
That issue was foreign campaign monies and the delivery of military superior equipment blueprints to China --a Communist gov.
In addition to bring the act of impeachment forward just before midterm will rally the democrat voters who give everything to the party based on their party generational bias.

Sorry for the additional post #35, but I really don´t trust impeachment either. I would rather the House sue Obama for overstepping his Constitutional authority, and having his Executive orders overturned by the Supremes.

It would be interesting though in an election year to see how many Senate Democrats would feel so threatened that they would vote to Impeach in the newly elected Senate. Especially if the Republicans regain the majority.

In the end, I don´t trust Boehner to do anything except to bluster.

Don´t all you people who are calling for impeachment understand that it cannot be done? Is it news to you that the Senate has to vote for impeachment? What is the point of beating a dead horse? The House is doing what it can. Two smart lawyers have shown them the way to prove "standing", the lack of which has gotten other lawsuits dismissed. Admittedly, they should have thought of it themselves.

The Senate does not vote for impeachment which is a charge of high crimes and misdemeanours. Impeachment is done solely by the House. After the impeachment the Senate votes to convict or not but the impeachment stands forever. It also provides a great opportunity to create formal documentation of all the crimes that were committed, and that is for all time. Impeachment is a great idea.

As Texas debates the implementation of some of the strictest abortion laws in the country, for at least three female lawmakers and candidates in that state, the debate has become intensely personal. The most high-profile of the three, of course, is gubernatorial hopeful and state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), who revealed recently in her memoir that she had medical procedures to end two pregnancies. “Our baby had a severe brain abnormality,” Davis said in a television interview. “We knew that the most loving thing that we could do for our daughter was to say goodbye.” Davis, now trailing badly in her campaign, made

The woman was grabbed from behind as she was walking from a grocery store to a friend’s home in Fairfax, Virginia, on the night of September 24, 2005. The attacker dragged the 26-year-old into a darkened park and beat her and raped her.

Jurafsky, a professor of linguistics at Stanford, looked at hundreds of examples of food language—from menus to marketing materials to restaurant reviews. Along the way, he uncovered some fascinating patterns. For example: In naming foods, he explains, marketers often appeal to the associations that we already have with certain sounds.

In attempting to downplay the political damage from a slew of second-term controversies, President Obama has counted on the American people having a very short memory span and a healthy suspension of disbelief. The time-tested strategy for Obama: Claim he´s in the dark about his own administration´s activities, blame the mess on subordinates, and hope that with the passage of time, all will be forgotten. Harry Truman, the president isn´t. He´s more likely to pass the buck.

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week.

Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder Monday announced a new federal program to target high-crime cities, including Chicago, Ill., where shootings and other violent crime have skyrocketed. Holder, who said last week he will resign once a replacement is confirmed, also announced that the Justice Department has awarded $124 million in hiring grants to 215 police departments across the country for the Community Oriented Policing Program, also known as COPS. Holder said the money would pay for nearly 950 new officers, who will mostly take on the job of community policing aimed at reducing street crime. The grant gives police departments the money to

Over the past half-century the Rollins family became known for two things: killing vermin and throwing great parties. Millions upon millions of vermin. And really, really great parties. Within Atlanta society the clan behind the Orkin pest control empire, now worth some $8 billion, became royalty, the envy of Buckhead’s WASP social set. Gary Rollins, the modern-era patriarch, would invite guests by the hundreds to join him and his wife, Ruthie, at the family’s lush 1,800-acre ranch near Cartersville, Ga. His handsome blond son Glen Rollins, the heir presumptive, preferred Gatsby-theme affairs at Boxwood, his English hilltop manor just outside the city,

Obama Was Warned Repeatedly of
Consequences of Withdrawal from Iraq

Top government officials and military brass repeatedly warned of the consequences of sticking to a timetable on full Iraq War troop withdrawal, but President Obama proceeded with the plan in 2011. U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker cautioned against such a move in the years beforehand. “I am certain that abandoning or drastically curtailing our efforts will bring failure,” he said in 2007. “An Iraq that falls into chaos or civil war will mean massive human suffering, well beyond what has already occurred within Iraq’s borders.” He told PBS later that he and Gen. David Petraeus refused to talk about timetables during that

The inequality police are worried that we are living in a new Gilded Age. We should be so lucky: Between 1880 and 1890, the number of employed Americans increased by more than 13 percent, and wages increased by almost 50 percent. I am going to go out on a limb and predict that the Barack Obama years will not match that record; the number of employed Americans is lower today than it was when he took office, and household income is down. Grover Cleveland is looking like a genius in comparison. The inequality-based critique of the American economy is a fundamentally

Beauty Town has an elaborate video surveillance system that displays 16 angles of the store, but the cameras are better at capturing crime than at preventing it. The beauty shop has been looted multiple times since a white Ferguson police officer shot an unarmed black man Aug. 9. Last week, during another round of unrest on West Florissant Avenue, a group of young men broke the front windows and raided the shelves and cash register. Owner Shawn Kim thinks 99% of the people who live around his shop are good people. For the rest, he’s bought a gun. Just in case. If the grand

Rick Perry said on Monday that the Obama administration will have to address the beheading of an Oklahoma woman in what the Texas governor noted closely resembles an act of terrorism. “At some point in time, the administration does have to address this as what is appears to many people that it is — and that is an act of violence that is associated with terrorism,” Perry said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” On Thursday, Alton Nolen, 30, allegedly attacked two women at a Vaughan Foods plant in Moore, Oklahoma. During the attack, one woman was beheaded. Investigators have discovered

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
